More about the 30-second intro pitches:
Everyone who’d like to participate will have the chance to introduce themselves in 30 seconds flat.
Why 30 seconds? Isn’t it too short? – No!
✅ It’s the optimum length to grab people’s attention.
✅ It’s powerful and respects everyone’s time.
✅ It’s a way to share your expertise and credentials quickly and effectively with people who don’t know you.
✅ When people approach you after the pitch, you’ll have the chance to explain more to those who would like to find out more about you.
What’s the best format for a 30-second intro pitch?
There are multiple ways to tackle an elevator pitch. There isn’t one single recipe, so experiment and see what works best for you. You might want to kick off with a short (perhaps creative, slightly unusual) intro of what you do, share some of your skills, mention your recent successes, and don’t forget to ask a question if you need help and want to be introduced to someone.
You can do this in 4 powerful sentences, less than 30 seconds. Those who’d like to find out more about you will certainly want to connect with you afterwards and that’s where you’ll have the chance to share more about yourself.
As this will be an online event, there’s no need to prepare business cards, however you’ll have the opportunity to exchange contact details and have private conversations with participants.
Join fellow language professionals on the evening, and join in the lively discussions.
NEW: Tickets are offered on a Pay What You Can basis, including a Free option for those who cannot afford more at this difficult time.

Every little helps.
Come along, be part of this initiative, and enjoy an evening with like-minded language professionals.
